I made these sweet little draw-string bags for my three nieces. They each have a little animal on the front that match the stuffed toys I made them along with their initials. They also have gorgeous floral linings but I forgot to photograph those - sorry!
Heffalump is all done and gorgeously, huggably cute. I think he's got a really smiley face.
I found some cotton yarn that was exactly the same colour as his ears. A quick plait and he has a beautiful tail.
Only a single lonely block this week but I think it's my favourite so far.
Something about that lime green and aqua together really makes me smile. It kind of reminds me of a sunny holiday somewhere.
I went to my LQS this today for an afternoon of sewing with my mum. I did promise myself to stick to the sale rack but these Whimsy prints were calling out to me.
I decided on the Weathervane block (see yesterday's post for the other options) and set about making a test block.
Amazingly my maths was right first time so, when I came home, I had a marathon slicing session. I have all the pieces ready to go for the other blocks. Next step: draw diagonal lines on 168 squares - definitely a sitting in front of the telly job!
- Strawberry Patch - Quilted around a couple more blocks. I've set myself the target of finishing all the echo quilting by the weekend so I can concentrate on the motifs.
- Neutral jelly roll bear paws, It's a hoot, Frosted window panes and Antique quilt - No progress.
